Dear European Pirates,
The Board for the European Pirate Party would like to invite you to the very first council meeting in the history of our organization. This meeting will be held in Brussels on July 17 and 18 2015. The council meeting is the equivalent of the General Assembly for the organization, and at the meeting we will among other things elect a new board, decide on the admittance of observer members and have a discussion on the future direction for our organization. A draft agenda will be sent out with a second invitation one month before the meeting.
Every ordinary member party who are up to date in their membership fee payments are eligible to send delegates to vote at the Council meeting. The number of delegates any member can send to the Council meeting is regulated in the statutes.
will instruction on how to pay the membership fees. Delegates from members who’ve fulfilled their membership fee obligations will be able to participate in the council meeting free of charge, and there will also be possibilities to apply for travel reimbursement and accommodation if you are a delegate.
Other pirates and interested persons are also very welcome to join as guests at the Council meeting. For these persons there will be an attendance fee of 30 Euro for the event
